ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, the largest international swim school franchise, is excited to announce the opening of its 144th worldwide location in Anaheim, California. The state-of-the-art facility, located at 3150 W. Lincoln Ave., Ste. 140, officially opened its doors on October 17, 2023.

Aqua-Tots Anaheim is owned by siblings and experienced franchise entrepreneurs Annette, Brian, Faraj, and Patrick Tomina, along with business partners Clint Mansour and Caroline Carlson. The group owns additional locations in Costa Mesa, Orange and Tustin, and their new Anaheim school is conveniently located to serve the communities of Anaheim, Cypress, Buena Park, Los Alamitos, Fullerton and Garden Grove.

Spanning an impressive 7,750 square feet, Aqua-Tots Anaheim is equipped with top-of-the-line amenities to provide a safe and enjoyable year-round swimming experience for children four months to 12 years old. In a community of young, active families and within close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the new location is perfectly situated to cater to the needs of Southern Californians.

“We are thrilled to bring Aqua-Tots to Anaheim,” said Carlson. “Drowning is the primary cause of death for young children under four, and formal swim lessons can drastically reduce that risk by 88%. We aim to provide exceptional swim, and with our experienced instructors and comprehensive curriculum, we are confident that Aqua-Tots Anaheim will become a beloved destination for families in the area.”

Aqua-Tots Anaheim will offer a wide range of swim programs to suit every age and stage. Small group lessons with four students are available for those who prefer a social learning environment, while semi-private lessons provide a more personalized approach with only two students in a class. Additionally, the Special Needs Aquatic Program offers lessons tailored to a child’s special needs and abilities.

Aqua-Tots Anaheim is now open seven days a week, ensuring flexibility for families with busy schedules. For more information about Aqua-Tots Anaheim or to sign up for swim lessons, please visit or call 714-430-8333.
